    True, LCA is an expensive junk. The very definition of a failed project that never got axed when it should have longtime ago. For the price of one LCA, Malaysia could buy a much better plane.

    why no one is talking about secret deal between USA and India of Tejas?
    American tried to steal and copy Teja Tech and build F35 but failed, they have no other option left now.

    I don't think they're on good terms with China, so the Tejas would probably be more attractive to them than the Thunder.

    I'm talking about why they might prefer the Tejas to the Thunder.

    OK. Then the Russian relations with Malaysia will also have to be considered as I doubt they will ever consider a Chinese engine.
